COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kulmbacher Edelherb is pale and dry. Its special taste is thanks to the soft brewing water from pristine, crystal-clear springs of the Fichtelgebirge, the noblest malting barley from regional farmlands, handpicked hops from the Hallertau, and our legendary brewing skills.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
Golden colour. Gentle carbonation. Substantial mossy, herbal hop aroma. Soft body with a somewhat toasty malt character. Only a little bit of grassy hop - the promised herbal dryness never materializes and the finish descends almost to doughiness.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a greenish hue to it. A small 2 mm creamy white head settles for a little while before disappearing. Aroma has a lot of malts, a maize like feel and a slight touch of roses. Medium to low carbonation. Taste begins slightly peppery bitter, then expands a lot of malty sweetness - all served very dry. Quite usable Pils.

bhensonb (10691) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Light aroma of noble hop with some malt behind it. Golden color with a fluffy white head that sort of laced. Near medium in body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is noble hop over light malt. The bitter builds into the finish. It’s not exactly crisp. Fits the style, but not as sharp as Urquell. Definitely a decent pils.

Bottle. Pours a light, clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Light, pale malt aroma with some grassy, clean-smelling hops. Flavor is fairly sweet with faint, lightly toasted biscuit and fine, crisp bitters. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes mildly sweet with dry, clean hops. Solid all around.

Tmoney99 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2007
5L keg from Dilly Deli. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Balanced bittersweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
